Thin crust PizzaThere are three main steps to make good pizza. First one is the base/crust, second is pizza sause & the third is toppings. It is better if you have pizza pan,but you can still make good pizza by using baking tray. This recipe gives you one 12″ pizza. I have divided the dough & made one 8″ pizza & one 4 ” pizza.

Toppings

  • Mushroom -1/4 cup (thinly chopped)
  • Pineapple – 1/2 cup (cubed)

Method

  • Now add all the other ingredients for the sause except cheese.
  • When it starts becoming thick, add the cheese & switch off the flame.

For the crust

  • Add the yeast in quater cup of warm water & allow it to sit for few minutes until you see the foam on top of the water.
  • Now add this to the flour & mix well by sprinkling some salt in your mixing bowl. Also add 1tsp of olive oil.
  • If the dough is very thick add 1 tbsp of water.
  • Finally pour the remaining 1tsp of olive oil on top of the dough to shape a ball.
  • Cover the bowl & keep it in a warm place until the dough doubles (approximately 1 hour).
  • Now punch the dough & cover it again & rest it in a warm place,so that it raises again (this time approximately 20 – 30 minutes).
  • Now nicely grease the 12 inch pan with olive oil & place the dough in it.
  • Slowly spread the dough like a thin layer using your fingers.
